BONUS REVIEW by W. DAL BUSH
The new Quasar and her girl hit the space road for a non-epic quest to find the "Kree savior". Uh, isn't that Hulkling from Young Avengers? Anyway, their non-epic quest is beset with talking trees and robots of many worlds. Well, at least two worlds. Maybe more. Consult your Annihilation Conquest Handbook, available eventually. Anyway again, Christos Gage does a passable job with some yet-to-be-deboringed (sp?) lead characters involved in a yet-to-be-enthrillinged (...no, that's spelled right) story, and Mike Lilly is apparently now the offspring of Alan Davis and Carlos Pacheco, but not in the good way. Just like last week's "Wraith", this is best left to Annihilation fans, not those looking to be converted. 6 Grahams
